I am compiling freetds from CVS like this
./configure --prefix= --with-tdsver=8.0 --enable-msdblib --with-unixodbc=$(odbc_config --prefix) --enable-krb5
the configure command runs fine, but the make fails, as below

if I do not add kerberos to the configure, it does work,
Compile-time settings (established with the "configure" script)
                            Version: freetds v0.92.dev.20150129
             freetds.conf directory: /etc
     MS db-lib source compatibility: yes
        Sybase binary compatibility: no
                      Thread safety: yes
                      iconv library: yes
                        TDS version: 5.0
                              iODBC: no
                           unixodbc: yes
              SSPI "trusted" logins: no
                           Kerberos: no
However I cannot make unixODBC connect to MS SQL. Tsql, does connect fine. Maybe I don´t need kerberos, but, how do I troubleshoot unixodbc with freetds?
I am using of course an entry in freetds.conf with
tds version = 8.0
